THE PERFECT GIFT – BESPOKE LEATHER TREATS FROM ANYA HINDMARCH

The Ebury Bag

It’s no mean feat, tracking down the perfect gift. Whether it’s for someone close to your heart, that you need to impress, that deserves your special thanks or warmest congratulations, or that just needs a lovely treat, we think we have the solution: Anya Hindmarch’s bespoke store on Pont Street.

Imagine a handwritten note secreted away inside the lining of a handbag. Or a love note embossed in gold inside a jewellery box? Your beloved’s initials stamped into the fine leather of a beautifully crafted wallet… This is the place to come for gifts that really mean something.

Walking into the store feels like stepping back through the years, to a time when craftsmanship and old-fashioned service was standard. From the antique cabinets that house the treasures, to the Persian rugs that muffle your steps, everything is an unimpeachable level of quality and good taste.

The Ultimate Box

But don’t let the ornate setting fool you, the process is blissfully simple. You choose your gift from a range of bespoke-able products that all can be designed from scratch. The Ultimate Box (pictured) is a touchingly intimate gift, as is the Ebury bag, which can be custom made, so you can choose everything from the leather to the colour, as well as electing to have a personalized message embossed within (pictured). Know someone who likes to travel? The Walton canvas bag (pictured) can have initials appliquéd onto its exterior. And then there are smaller gifts like card cases, keepsake boxes, passport cases, diaries, travel folios, loose pockets, book marks that can all be created to your specifications.

And, of course, you can always choose something for yourself while you’re there…
